I created the background using Adirondack inks in Lettuce and Stonewashed, with just a touch of Pink Sherbet, using a piece of acrylic and swiping the colours on to it and diluting with a spray or two of water. I then laid the card on to the acrylic and transferred the colour. I did this a couple of times to add extra colour until I was happy with the result. I did try to keep the colours fairly light and minimal where I knew the stamp was going to sit so that the colours used to colour the stamp would stay fairly true and I wanted to keep the background quite light anyway. I then stamped the IndigoBlu Rose Blush stamp on to the background using Black Archival ink.
I coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir pencils and I added a little extra pink randomly to the background as I felt this would complement the stamp more. I finished by adding the sentiment using Black Archival ink.
I have to admit that my white square cards do not work well with watercolour techniques, so I used a piece of stamping card and then attached this to the base card when finished. It did warp a bit so I ended up cutting the whole thing down to get a better edge for gluing.
